chanel illusion d'ombre 92 diapason, spring 2014 collection

I see you wiped your mouth woman! I can’t blame you, I drooled like a hungry wolf too.

Soft, cushiony, luxe, and sparkly, Illusion D’ Ombre 92 Diapason ($36, 0.14 oz) is part of Chanel Notes de Printemps Spring 2014 Collection. Diapason is described as luminous deep purple. The other shade 93 Impulsion is sparkly pastel pink (limited edition). After several minutes of heated self-deliberation, I caved in to purple. Reason being, it’s 2014’s pantone color! But between now and next week, who knows I might buy that pink, haha! #girlproblems

Diapason is an interesting eye shadow to play with. I like to use my ring finger to pat it on my eyelids, then a crease brush to blend and buff. You can see from the photos that it’s purple when directly applied on the lids, then transitions to a beautiful spectra of maroon-pink-brown hues when blended from the crease up. You can use it on its own or as an eyeshadow base. There is minimal fading on the seventh hour sans unsightly creasing.

Do you have anything similar in your collection? Fill me in.

    I am in love with this shade on people! I wish I wore more purple on my eyes. Then I could justify the splurge.

    This is why I can't buy Chanel. Because I know I would buy one thing, and I would just die over how amazing it was and I would go bankrupt. Can't. Stop. At. One.

    Looks gorgeous on you!
